Best Answer

There are currently no professional women's hockey players in North America. The women playing in the Canadian Women's Hockey League and the Western Women's Hockey League are not compensated at all to play. In fact, many of them actually have to pay to play. There are a large number of members of the Canadian and US women's national teams playing in these leagues and they are paid to train by their respective national associations as "carded" athletes. However, the amount they are paid ranges in between $1000-$2000 per month, hardly a "pro" level contract.

There are professional women's hockey leagues in Europe and Russia. Their compensation is not known, but the North American players who play there are paid relatively well, although again, not anywhere close to the level of the men's pro players.
